How Much?

How much does it cost for RCA to remaster and package stuff like the Moody Blue reissues and the endless compilations? Do they make back the money they invest?


* If the reissues aren't remixed than what the FU** does Ferrante do? "Re-equalize" the sound?

Your second post and you are already using the "F" word?
Was that really necessary?
Keep it clean!!

ease up Jeff, he wuz curtious enuff to bleep out the **CK! lol

anyway, to answer that question, back in the late 80's it was costing RCA approx. $3,000 to reissue/remaster Elvis cd's on their mid price/best buy cd series. i have a great article from GOLDMINE mag from back in'89 and explains all that and even criticizes RCA for their sloppy work on the "G.I. BLUES" '88 re-issue! hope that helps...

Thanks minkahed, a transcription of the "Goldmine" article would be nice to read, but for example anyone know about studio costs and what people like Ferrante and Ernst earn from say the "Promised Land" c.d?

They must be a nice little earner or they wouldn't get done.
